"Can you still practice safe sleep with two babies in the cot"

The NHS advise that putting your twins to sleep in the same cot while they are small enough is perfectly ok. They should be placed on their backs with the tops of their heads facing each other, and their feet at the opposite ends of the cot.


On their backs side by side in the cot with their feet facing the side of the cot.

Co-bedding your twins can help regulate their body temperatures, sleep cycles and can also soothe them. Always follow the same safe sleep advice for a single baby.
